Uruguayan architect Rafeal Viñoly is adding to Miami’s growing high-rise landscape with two new towers, linked together by a three-floored skybridge.
The project, which will be named “One River Point,” will see the construction of a 65-story building, housing luxury apartments, offices, retail outlets, a hotel, a spa, a nightclub, and a multi-story parking garage. It will be developed by KAR Properties and seeks to convey an “expression of art and nature.”
At 800ft above the ground, the building’s skybridge will ultimately be the main attraction for guests and tenants. The L-shaped suspended platform follows the esplanade and includes indoor areas for bars and nightclubs, as well as outdoor areas complete with a palm tree court, swimming pools, and a cascading waterfall.
Whether this is your dream home or your idea of a true Ballardian nightmare, you have to admit it’s a genius piece of architecture. Check it out above.
